Speaking of fridge cleaning, that’s how I derived this recipe. 🙂 Well, at least partly.

When I make spicy food for my family (usually for me and my husband), I try to make a similar dish that’s not spicy so that my little girl can have it instead.

A few months ago, I made Kimchi Udon Noodle Stir Fry for us adults but for my daughter, I didn’t know what to give her.

So I checked my fridge for available ingredients and it happened to be chicken, broccoli, and capsicum/bell pepper. Then I borrowed the sauce idea from my Sticky Honey Soy Chicken Drumsticks. And the result was kaboom!

Since then, this chicken and broccoli noodle stir fry became our family’s favourite meal.

It’s cumbersome to create two different meals in one night, but then again, I usually end up with two completely different and creative dishes. Lately, this is how my recipe development process starts. Lol.

Anyway, I hope you give this one a try soon and let me know what you thought of it!

  • 1/2 small (45g/1.6 ounces) red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 tsp roasted sesame seeds
  • Some cooking oil (I use rice bran oil)

How to Make Easy Chicken and Broccoli Noodle Stir Fry

1.Marinate the chopped chicken in the sauce (while the other ingredients are getting prepared) and set aside. Heat a pan/skillet on medium-high heat and once heated add some cooking oil and spread it thinly. Add the chicken (and any remaining marinade) and cook until 60% of the meat is cooked (about 5 mins). Stir occasionally.

2. Boil the udon noodles per the manufacturer’s instructions. Drain the water. Set aside. (Ideally, step 1 and step 2 should start at the same time so that you use the fresh, warm and not sticky noodles.)

3. Add the broccoli and the red bell peppers into the skillet and stir. Cook until the chicken is nearly (98%) cooked. Add the boiled udon noodles and stir occasionally. Once the chicken is fully cooked, garnish with the sesame seeds then serve.
